just did a dvd called rediscovering god in america which includes a section on washington. and i'm very intrigued with the extraordinary job that mount vernon has done in blding a remarkable education center, which i encourage everyone who comes to washington to go see. i would be very tempted someday to write aovel aut washington personally. i think washington's life is so amazing. he is such a personal odyssey in the development of freedom and he's so little understood, but it would be very daunting because washington is maybe the most complex american. i'd be pretty intimidated right now to try to explain his mind and explain how he operated. >> host: we have about 5 minutes left in our first hour of three with author, writer newt gingrich and also former speaker of the house and historian. we're spending three hours talking about his 14 books over his ceer so far. the next telephone call is from jacksonville, florida. you're on the air. >> caller: hello and thank you r c-span and congratulations to brian lamb on his presidential medal of freedom. mr. gingrich, you spoke earlier abou
't see coming, stand up! come on, follow me. well, hello, america. there is a revolution that is happening in this country, and it's one that most people aren't really aware of. it has been happening for a while. we will get into that in the next few minutes. the most transparent white house in history, however, hasn't answered any of the questions. of course, he was on vacation, so we should wait. maybe he will do it tomorrow. we asked a lot of questions last week, tough questions like why does the president have so many marxist, socialist radicals and a self-proclaimed communist advising him? i'm still hopeful that there's a simple explanation, but i don't think so. maybe he just wasn't aware of their radical beliefs, you know. after all, he sat in reverend wright's pews for 20 years and didn't catch on to the fact that wright isn't too fond of america or what was he called it, the u.s. k.k.a. of america. so here is the one thing of tonight. it is not an accident. president obama's radical advisors are there for a reason. they are fighting a revolution. it's not the kin
on terror. the news starts right now. >>> we begin with america's ferocious debate over health care reform growing more unhealthy by the day. across the country we're witnessing town hall meetings on health care devolving into shouting matches worthy of a jerry springer episode with people lashing out over who ultimately pays the bill for millions of medically uninsured americans. >> the event remained largely civil. huge crowds with hundreds more gathering outside. >> when the republicans controlled congress and the senate, why didn't you introduce and pass health care reform then? >> my biggest fear is this is going to get rammed down our throats. >> do we look like mob? >> this doesn't look like mob this. looks like home. >> some estimated that as many as another 800 couldn't get in and were locked outside. >> won't even let us in. they blocked us out. >> my son has the right to live. >> no doubt about it. >> my son has the right to health care. >> you don't really think you're going to get that, ma'am, in this bill, do you? >> you have to do something. >> that's what i hear from the li
. and this became an occasion for me to explain in america there is a company where you can actually borrow a car and give it back in what was interesting about that too one liberian member of the fugees was that he now lives in a culture amazingly enough where a total stranger would not only lead to a carbon trusted you to bring it back, that was a real shocker. i would try to explain that you give them this piece of plastic with some numbers on and if you take off with a car or crashes there will read a letter to this company called experian and then you can buy a house and tried to explain in you realize this is absurd. no wonder is so hard for refugees to figure out our culture. look at how many layers we have piled on to something as simple as borrowing a car and ellis of consequences can be very long if you screw up. in the there were other moments that were more serious and more poignant by thing for me one of the most poignant moments of my reporting was talking to a sudanese refugee about his experience coming to the u.s. charismatic incredibly talented soccer player at an academic schol
with america with over 300 million americans you have to pick a handful of big ideas, talk about them and leslie and gradually over time you'll build an effect in a residence and the country it will learn and have a genuine dialogue. >> host: san diego, you are on thair, i like to talk about how the american enterprise institute that mr. gingrich is associated with is highlighted in the book frequently. i would like to address some key aspects that have not been brought up. a first of all, mr. gingrich i it was at a presentation and was unable to ask a questiobecause of the democratic moderator there wouldn't call in may because i had a challenge richard perle the day before about agenda associated with that you. the project with a new american century which has been disbanded only in name only and you are a propagandist of these people. you can't look yourself up in that wall is a book about the power of low lobby called the israel lobby and u.s. foreign policy. there is a media blackout in america. 60 minutes and c is refusing to do a segment on it yet these the esteemed political s
evening, everyone. i'm don lemon. >>> we begin with america's ferocious debate over health care reform growing more unhealthy by the day. across the country we're witnessing town hall meetings on health care devolving into shouting matches worthy of a jerry springer episode with people lashing out over who ultimately pays the bill for millions of medically uninsured americans. >> the event remained largely civil. huge crowds overwhelmed the meeting hall with hundreds more gathering outside. >> we're very, very scared. >> when the republicans controlled congress and the senate, why didn't you introduce and pass health care reform? >> my biggest fear is this is going to get rammed down our throats. >> this is a mob. do we look like a mob? >> this doesn't look like mob this looks like home. >> some estimated that as many as another 800 couldn't get in and were locked outside. >> won't even let us in. they blocked us out. >> my son has the right to live. >> no doubt about it. >> my son has the right to health care. >> you don't really think you're going to get that, ma'am, in this bill, do
northern virginia here on c-span. >> good morning. i am an intern scholar here at the young america foundation, a leading organization on college campuses. if you would like to take advantage of the resources or campus activism, such as booking speakers were getting materials for events, please contact us by phone or online at our website, www.yaf.org. our next speaker is president of the washington d.c.-based research council which leads the way in defending the judeo- christian values upon which our nation was built. he served in the louisiana state legislature as recognized as a pioneer by offering many measures. he hosts a national radio program called "washington watched weekly." his first book was released just last year. copies will be available of this book for purchase and signing after his talk. a veteran of the u.s. marine corps and a former police officer and tv news reporter, he brings a unique blend of experience and leadership to the pro-family movement. please welcome mr. tony perkins. [applause] >> good morning. it is good to see a friendly crowd here in d.c. for
and i mean america really falling back. i mean, america really declining. i mean opportunity slipping away. sound -- founded fierce? unfounded fears? >> the reason they're unfounded is because there's a disconnect between the people who are leading this country and the people who are supposed to be leading. a new poll shows that 70% of americans would favor less government and lower taxes. their attitude, that tastes great and it's less filling. that's what they'd really like to see. but the government and, look, republicans have to take some blame on this because they help set some of this stuff up with the tarp bill last fall. but when you start having a government that ignores the people, holds them in contempt, makes fun of them, calls them a mob -- sean: when did this ever happen? >> ridicules them. the divide gets greater and greater but clearly there's something not getting through to the people in washington, d.c. sean: governor, everything that the government seems to touch is bankrupt. i'm using a term government derangement syndrome, that in spite of the post office failing
's all somehow inevitable and that the only way for america to get ahead is for places like elkhart to be left behind. you hear that argument sometime in washington. but i know and you know that the truth is exactly the opposite. i'm here because i believe our ability to recover and to prosper as a nation depends on what happens in communities just like this one. the battle for america's future will be fought and won in places like elkhart and detroit and goshen and pittsburgh, south bend, youngstown, in cities and towns across indiana and across the midwest and across the country that have been the backbone of america. it will be won by making places like elkhart what they once were and can be again, and that is centers of innovation and entrepreneurship and ingenuity and opportunity. the whirring engines of america. we can't afford to run the race at half strength or half speed. if we hope to lead this century like we did the last century, we have to create the conditions and opportunities for places like elkhart to succeed. we have to harness the potential, the innovative and cr
, but not this time. >>> and he's america's money man. and president obama wants to keep him on the job. mr. obama revealed this morning that he'll nominate federal reserve chair, ben bernanke, nor for a second term, that announcement from martha's vineyard, where the family is vacations came through. he said bernanke has led the u.s. through the worst economic crisis that we've ever faced. he'll have to be confirmed by senate where some lawmakers might not be too happy with his first term. >>> promising news on the housing front, and it's about time. a closely watched index shows home prices have posted their first quarterly increase in 3 years. it was nearly a 3% jump from the first quarter but still down 15% from the second quarter of last year. home prices are now at home levels not seen since early 2003. >>> there's a lot of optimism about the economy in asia, but how about new york? cnn's richard quest joins us once again, but this time not from the front of the new york stock exchange, he's in brooklyn. what have you found there besides the waterfront, my friend? >> reporter: i've joined th
of air america and dana lohse affiliated with the st. louis tea party. dana, why so much anger, mistrust and misinformation out there? we wonder, has this whole thing devovled to the point where it is unproductive but potentially dangerous? >> i don't think it can be dangerous. congress is sfonsable for setting the tone. congress hasn't allowed for discourse for one of the most important pieces of legislation in american history that is what people are reacting to. they are tired of calling their legislator and leaving a message with an aide. we are seeing people who are flocking there because they have their elected official's ear and they want to express their conditions about the health care legislation. >> ron, what about the argument, this is not organized, but a grassroots movement and deeply concerned about health care. >> that is fine to get involved and it is good to show up at a town hall meeting and have a conversation. you have to have the conversation and have the discussion. many of these people, not all, many of these people are clearly showing up to shut the conversation

back at her fashion for good taste on "good morning america." >> from the vault, sushi in 1985 and a tasteful way to prepare sweet peas in 1982. >> when i was living in paris and learning cooking, my old freven chef taught me how to make big old store bought peas and they can be delicious. you start out with half a teaspoon of salt, about three cups of peas and then some lettuce leaves. those are shredded lettuce leaves. then two, three tablespoons of minced shall ots or scallions and about two tablespoons of bulleter. and a little bit of sugar. the reason for that is when you got old peas, you need a little sugar to give them that fresh taste because the sugar in old peas turns to stach. you want to make them taste sweet. >> now, this is the big prick of all. tack your hands and press the ingredients into the piece to brood them because that makes the flavor penetrate and then on to the stove and then put in just enough water to cover the peas and then put them over high heat with the cover on them, let them really boil hard. that's going to steam boil. it will take about 15 m
that has always moved america forward nap means once again having the best educated, highest skilled workforce in the world. that means a health care system that makes it possible for entrepreneurs to innovate and businesses to compete without being saddled with skyrocketing insurance costs. >> reporter: there you have it. essentially what we are likely going to be hearing from president obama in the days and weeks to come. once again, t.j., trying to make his case and make his argument, that health care reform is an issue that cannot wait. that lawmakers have to tackle it sooner rather than later. t.j.? >> yeah, elaine. we know the president's making his kashgs but seems like the other side of the debate, you could almost argue, other democrats in a lot of ways. where do the republicans fit in and what do they have to say? just seems like this debate is going back and forth between democrats an democrats. >> reporter: you're absolutely right. a lot of this, deep divisions with the democratic party over this. conservative blue dog we heard about before, as well as progressive. for th
. listen to make we need to recapture the spirit of innovation that has always moved america forward. that means once again having the best educated, highest skilled workforce in the world. that means a healthcare system that makes it possible for entrepreneurs to innovate and businesses to compete without being saddled with skyrocketing insurance costs. >> julie: the republicans continue to hammer away at the president's health-care proposal. if x. optical to senator johnston said obama's plan would not help healthcare at all. cnet republicans in congress know that serious health-care reform is a top priority of the american people. we are committed to getting it done. but we need to get the right reform, rather than just rush something through that would leave us in far worse shape in the future. >> julie: senator thune said he proposed plant would burden state governments and probably result in higher taxes. >> are called starting a racial controversy that reached all the way to the white house, but before all of that at first contributed to the arrest of a prominent harvard profe
geico's the third-largest car insurance company in america? nice tidbit there. boss: exactly. and i've been thinking, looking a bit more businesslike might help too. gecko: oh my. uhhh, no it's, what's, what's the word... vogeico. 15 minutes could save you 15 percent or more on car insurance. >>> so this is what everyone has been e-mailing us asking us to do, at least me. let's cut through the health care rhetoric right now. just the facts here. angie is here from a nonpartisan fact checking group. angie, let's jump right into it. my first one here is that all of -- let's just say there are a couple of different proposals. i think there's like three in the house, two to the senate, and they're all just proposals. no bill yet. there's no bill. all of the proposals include no pre-existing conditions and health care for all americans. true? >> they all include the no preconditions and they all expand medicaid, which is a health program run by the government for the poor. and we essentially have a bill in the house that three committees have injure dis ovju over and we're waiting for o

[applause] >> good morning. thank you all for coming and welcome to the 31st annual national conservative students conference. young america's foundation is the premier organization that educates college students on the principles of liberty, government, individual liberty, strong national events, and traditional values. for more information, i urge you all to go to our website. i have had the benefit of working with young america's foundation for the past two years. have great success with the foundation. i am very excited for our next speaker. herman cain is an accomplished speaker and writer on leadership, motivation, national and economic policy and he is the american dream. godfather's pizza was performing poorly before he
in america. thank you, sir. >> you bet. >> you heard the young man there. he's saying, you know, people are accusing us of being racist and that's not so. >> well, you know, not everyone who opposes the president's plan or him as an individual obviously is acting on the basis of racism. my argument is that there is a background noise of the hostility that is, i think, about what i guess i would call white racial resentment. let me give you an example. we know in missouri the other day a white man goes, assaults a black woman, rips up her poster of rosa parks and receives a huge ovation from literally hundreds of white folks in attendance for doing that, and then as they haul her away, the police in the room, the security, haul her away, these white folks are applauding. she was assaulted, a picture of rosa parks ripped up. there are white folks in the room with posters that refer to the president by the "n" word. no one seemed to care about that. secondly, we've got right wing radio talk show hosts who for months now have been playing the white racial resentment card to get their forces
to be something perfect. so -- and we've got to remember, too. look this really isn't a humanitarian megs. america did not go to afghanistan for al true wis sick and national security interest. that's going to have to be the goal of the campaign. and so how is the fight going? i mean, early on we heard from u.s. commanders on the ground and saying, look, there's not enough afghan troops in this. >> there's not. they are doubling the size of the afghan army. as i last saw it, it was a hodge podge of different foot soldiers from different world wars. and when i last saw them, he actually lies to the back home. so this is going to be difficult. it's true, the momentum right now is the taliban and in a war like this, if you are not winning, you are almost losing. america may not lose it but they may not win it. the true victory, it's going to have to come with some kind of a functioning system, a decentralized system. >> u.s. commanders say there's not a true military system. >> and they did right. sorry to pardon the pump but they did right. the solution is not going to be in the trenches. you've got
the states and that means any city or state in america if her opinion is upheld what can ban all guns in the jurisdictions. and if her opinion is not reversed that is what will happen in america and i would note the supreme court in ruling on that case, the hell lowercase but told clearly for the first time the second amendment is an individual right and applied to the district of columbia which effectively band firearms in the district of columbia and they said that was not constitutional, that the citizens of the district have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms and it cannot be eliminated so if the sotomayor opinion is upheld i can only say the second amendment be viable in the district of columbia and now the other cities and states in the country. madam president, with regard to the takings case one of the most significant taking cases in recent years she ruled against a private land owner who had his property taken and he intended to build a pharmacy. a developer working with the city utilized the power of the city to attempt to extort money from the individual so that
now to explain what that means is alan hartigan of america's town hall and cheryl galloway, the interim director for americans for prosperity. how do you feel about the town hall today? do you think it was successful? >> absolutely. it was a great event. we put this together in four weeks to have a crowd of 5,000 people in four weeks, is just phenomenal. over 20 organizes were represented. you helped out with that, i spoke to you earlier, you were part of organizing events as well as tea parties. how do you feel about what happened here today? >> i love to see the energy here. it's hot, august day, everybody was burning up. but there was a lot of enthusiasm and energy. people are glad to be able to tell their view, their side of the story. what they want to see washington do. i love seeing that people were ve responsive. i gave a speech to positive alternatives and people were enthusiastic about that as well. >> even on such a hot day, it was interesting to see how many people came out here. but from thevent these guys organizes here today, across the country, we've been he
-- or nationalize health care in america. i don't intend to do anything to allow government bureaucrats to get between you and your doctor. >> senator, please forgive my teleprompter here. i've heard your recent rhetoric about how we want the same thing as obama and health care reform. i disagree on every level. there is nothing in that bill that i would agree to and we have to stop giving ground. >> government isn't the answer, it's a cancer. >> right now, as dan lothian reports, the white house is working hard to stay on message. >> you don't know. you don't know. >> 74 going to be written off because they have cancer. >> why don't they take the health care being forced down our throats. >> you don't trust me? >> there's a lot of debate about the health care debate. some are calling it a mismessage. >> there's a concern that if this misinformation machine continues and the record can't be corrected as the white house would like it to be that it could potentially make it more difficult to get health care reform? >> we'll get -- the debate is dominated by something that's not true, of course.
a lot to his home country of argentina. he served as the chief of the latin america western hemisphere program at the international monetary fund. welcome back to the dialogue. he will start us off, also he has written a paper on mexico, which he sounds a little bit like a pessimist. >> think you very much. in deference to your very strong feelings, the oi will now a power pointpoint. this is a great opportunity. we are extremely knowledgeable. when i used to go on mission to mexico, i was always very interested in my counterpart. it was intellectually challenging, but always a pleasure to visit some diego and how much i could learn. and lisa has been working on these things for a long time. standard and poor's has been the tougher and the most objective of the agencies in dealing with mexico. let me just start by saying, mexico is in its worst economic crisis since 1995. the gdp is expected to fall by about the same percentage as it fell in 1994 and 1995, when i was dealing with it, and where the hair i did not lose up the time turned very great. -- turned very gray. the problems mexi
that the american people get a fair deal when it comes to health care in america, please give max baucus a big round of applause. >> reporter: in private, top presidential advisors admit the fight has reached a critical age. the opposition has gained steam, capitalizing on anger over debt the and bailout at town hall meetings. >> where does that state that government has these powers to take over health care? >> reporter: by comparison, the president's town hall here was pretty tame. though he did get one pointed question that reflected the strong opposition he's facing. >> we keep getting the bull. that's all we get is bull. you can't tell us how you're going to pay for this. the only way you're going to get that money is to raise our taxes. you said you wouldn't. >> look, you are absolutely right that i can't cover another 46 million people for free. >> reporter: but the president did not shrink from the challenge and vowed again he will not raise taxes on the middle class to pay for the difference. >> when i was campaigning, i made a promise that i would not raise your taxes if you made $250,000

john ashcroft looks back, not in anger, but in awe, in "never again, securing america and restoring justice," ashcroft writes about his role in wake of 9/11 and his defense of the patriot act. >>> and still to come, former vice president cheney's memoirs scheduled for publication in spring of 2011. that should be interesting. he's expected to give detailed accounts on differences with his boss, specifically in their second term. and former defense secretary donald rumsfeld also has a book deal. his book will cover his entire political career. >>> former swimsuit model murdered and mutilated and jammed in a suitcase. the manhunt intensifies for her reality star ex-husband. fancy feast appetizers. simple high quality ingredients like wild alaskan salmon, white meat chicken, or seabass and shrimp in a delicate broth, prepared without by-products or fillers. new fancy feast appetizers. celebrate the moment. >>> unemployment's high and credit is tight. but the fed says recovery is still on the way, and soon. my health is important to me. it's critical that i stick to my medication. i can
, countrywide was sold to bank of america. the ability we had to affect countrywide in that time was very limited. >> i have another question. this relates to the point mr. bowman just made. as you said, 54 of the 69 banks that failed this year are state- chartered banks. i guess it is a historical anomaly why the fed supervises state chartered banks and mr. dugan supervises federally chartered banks -- when i first get to the banking committee in 1981, i didn't understand it. it just happened. let me ask mr. tarullo , most of the failed banks were not regulated by the supervisor or by ots. explain to me and this bair can answer as well. explain to me why the fdic and the fed should keep state- chartered supervision, particularly if we're giving the fed more responsibilities and other areas. if you think those functions should be kept apart, from the proposed national bank supervisor, why shouldn't at the very least merge fdic and the fed supervision of this state chartered bank? >> can i ask the panel to try to answer quickly? >> i will ask unanimous consent that each panelist be asked t
invasion and conquest of america." good to see you both this morning. >> morning, carlos. >> bob, who did i elicit a laugh from? from pat or bob? >> you know, it's sort of a predictable title for one of pat's books, but it will probably sell a lot of books on the right and help the republican party to permanent minority status. >> i've written two books since then, bob, and that was about the immigration debate which as you recall we won pretty well. >> oh, yeah, you really won. you managed to drive that hispanic vote for the republican presidential candidate down from 44% to 35%. and republicans can't win without 40% of the hispanic vote. >> we're doing just fine right now. i notice obama's in strategic retreat, bob. >> actually, you know what? you guys have brought this to the perfect place. i didn't even need to set this up. hey, bob, i'm going to go to you first. is pat right, is the president in strategic retreat at this point midway through the august recess, and if not, what in your mind does he need to do in order to ultimately get meaningful health care reform done? >> i think he's
humanity and asserted their rights. >> we're continuing our discussion tonight on america's issues on race. one red-hot controversial issue in particular is the sometimes strained relationship between african americans and the police. warren valentine is the host of "the warren valentine show," and he's also a former prosecutor. he's joining us live. he's in atlanta. thank you very much. you're usually by satellite. good to see you. >> good to see you, don. >> we have been discussing one of the comments i have been hearing from african americans that african-americans are too sensitive on racial matters but it's not always matters of race. >> it's not. the situation in boston with sergeant crowley, i was one of the main people saying look, this is not racial profiling taking place. i said it on my national show and my local show in chicago. however, one of the things that's not being discussed here is what happened, and this is what is going on in black america. have you 2 million people incarcerated in this country. 1 million are black. when you look at officer crowley falsifying a police

. >> with everybody in america had the provisions that our members have, there wouldn't be a health care crisis. >> reporter: it's like a health care cooperative, a community-based, nonprofit organization owned by its members, a group that uses its strength in numbers to negotiate competitive rates with health care providers. and that's an idea gaining traction on capitol hill. robert burns, a professor of health care management at the university of pennsylvania, said the key to co-ops is size. 20,000 to 50,000 enrolles minimum needed. >> if they're not big enough, then they won't be able to do either of those two things, hold down the administrative costs internally or negotiate good rates externally. >> reporter: even then it may not be enough. do you see health care co-ops as the silver bullet to this debate? >> no. as i told my class last night, it's part of the silver buckshot. >> reporter: so, one of many that needs to be done for health care reform. he agrees, it may not suit everyone's health care needs, but he's at least hoping that it will force americans to think outside the box. >>

. there are so many different philosophies and idea in america. i don't think any, any plan that comes out, will be acceptable to one part of the population or another to a very significant degree. and it's jealousy when somebody has something that you can't have, it bothers you. so i would look to suggest that there be one benefit plan for every american in this system. and then people who want to -- >> what's your question? >> then people who want to have other benefits besides that they can do something like the medicare supplemental insurance plans. so i would look to ask your opinion on that? >> both, both senator, well i shouldn't say, i shouldn't never speak for senator bachus. i feel in this area that maybe i can say that he and i are working toward something that is going to give americans more choice than what you are suggestion would be. now, will we be able to, working and talking, and i don't know there will be a product or not. but we are working towards a direction of having people to have choice. >>> the townhall held by senator chuck grassley. none of this is stopping. the
